1 Platnick, N. I., and M. U. Shadab A new genus of the spider subfamily Gnaphosinae from th e Virgin Islands (Araneae, Gnaphosidae). J. Arachnol. 3 : A NEW GENUS OF THE SPIDER SUBFAMILY GNAPHOSINA E FROM THE VIRGIN ISLANDS (ARANEAE, GNAPHOSIDAE ) Norman I. Platnick and Mohammad U. Shadab Department of Entomology The American Museum of Natural History Central Park West at 79th Stree t New York, New York ABSTRAC T A new genus, Microsa, is established for M. chickeringi, a new species from the Virgin Islands. Although closest to the African genus Asemesthes, Microsa differs from the other known gnaphosine genera in size and in characters of the eyes, spinnerets, and genitalia. The spider subfamily Gnaphosinae, characterized by the presence of a serrated keel on the cheliceral retromargin, is represented in North America only by the Holarctic genu s Gnaphosa (Platnick and Shadab, 1975). It was therefore with surprise that we studied th e Virgin Island specimens described below, which differ from Gnaphosa in size as well a s ocular, spinneret, and genitalic characters. Comparisons with descriptions and availabl e specimens of the previously described New and Old World gnaphosine genera indicat e that these specimens represent an undescribed genus most closely allied to Asemesthes, described by Simon (1887) on the basis of an immature female from South Africa. A s interpreted by Purcell (1908), Dalmas (1921), Tucker (1923), Lawrence (1927, 1928), and Lessert (1933), Asemesthes includes about 25 African species with either strongly o r moderately recurved posterior eye rows. The Virgin Island specimens resemble the latte r group of Asemesthes species closely in ocular characters, but differ in genitalic character s (males lack the elaborate retrolateral tibial apophysis and elongated embolus of Asemesthes) and by having two spigots, rather than three, on the anterior spinnerets (Simon, 1893, indicated that Asemesthes have two spigots on the anterior spinnerets, but Dalmas, 1921, showed that this was an error caused by a poorly preserved specimen, and al l subsequently described Asemesthes have three spigots). In addition to the structura l differences separating the new genus, the Virgin Island species, with males under 2 mm and females under 3 mm in total length, is the smallest known member of the subfamily. The format of the descriptions and standard abbreviations of morphological term s follow those used in Platnick and Shadab (1975). We thank Dr. H. W. Levi of the Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University, for making the specimens available for study and allowing us to retain two of the females for the collection of the America n Museum of Natural History. The scanning electron micrographs were obtained with the assistance of Mr. Robert J. Koestler.

2 192 THE JOURNAL OF ARACHNOLOG Y Microsa, new genu s Type species. Microsa chickeringi, new species. Etymology. The generic name is an arbitrary combination of letters considered feminine in gender. Diagnosis Microsa may be distinguished from all other gnaphosids by the followin g combination of characters : cheliceral retromartin with serrated keel (Fig. 1), anterio r spinnerets with two spigots (Fig. 2), posterior eye row recurved (Fig. 8), male palp without retrolateral tibial apophysis (Fig. 6), and total length under 3 mm. Description. Total length L7-2.4 mm. Carapace roughly triangular in dorsal view, widest between coxae II and III, but not greatly narrowed posteriorly, truncated an d narrowed anteriorly, pale yellowish brown with dark border, scattered dark markings, an d black ocular area (Fig. 3), with erect black setae and two clypeal macrosetae. Cephali c area moderately elevated, posterior declivity smooth ; thoracic groove short, longitudinal. From front, anterior eye row procurved, posterior row straight ; from above, anterior row slightly procurved, posterior row recurved : PME square, nocturnal ; other eyes circular, diurnal. Lateral eyes larger than medians. AME separated by more than their diameter, b y less than their diameter from ALE. PME separated by less than their diameter, by roughly their diameter from PLE. Lateral eyes separated by slightly less than their diameter. MOQ roughly square. Clypeal height at AME more than three times the AME diameter. Chelicerae with promarginal series of short spines and retromarginal serrated keel (Fig. 1). Endites convergent, obliquely depressed. Labium much wider than long. Sternum slightly longer than wide, without sclerotized extensions to coxae, with broad extension betwee n coxae IV. Leg formula Tarsi with two dentate claws and claw tufts, without distinct scopulae. Metatarsal preening comb lacking. Trochanters not notched. Typical leg spination pattern (only surfaces bearing spines listed) : femora : I, II dl-1-0, p0-0-1 ; III, I V dl-1-0, p0-0-1, ro-0-1 ; patellae IV ro-1-0 ; tibiae: I, II v0-1r-0; III, IV p1-0-1, vlp-lp-2, ro-1-1 ; metatarsi: I, II vlr-0-2; III, IV p-0-1-2, v0-0-1p, ro-1-2. Abdomen longer than wide, with distinct pattern (Fig. 3), venter without markings ; males with inconspicuous anterio r scutum. Six spinnerets ; anteriors widely separated, bearing two long spigots (Fig. 2). Palp Figs. 1, 2.-Microsa chickeringi, new species, scanning electron micrographs: 1, chelicera, posterio r view, showing serrated keel, 1000x ; 2, anterior spinneret, ventral view, showing spigots, 500x.
